It will soon be time for the BBC Sussex & BBC Surrey Community Heroes Awards and we are looking for nominations. Is there anyone you would like to put forward?
It could be someone who works with or for you if you are a local employer, people you’ve seen volunteering with you or others, or a friend or neighbour.
The idea is to reward local people in Sussex and Surrey who go the extra mile and are worth recognising.
To nominate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the person. In your email, please let us know why they’re worth considering in a few sentences or a paragraph.
The deadline for this is midnight on 7th October but we’re starting the lists now!
Nominees will get a certificate from us. We’ll also have a lovely evening awards bash for all those who are shortlisted and the winners in November. It’s a really special evening.
It’s been such a success that many other radio stations have started doing the same type of event as us.
